SOLARSKI TAKES THE LEAD IN THE 2 COUNTIES CHAMPS
With all three Cadet Honda drivers going into the penultimate 2 Counties Club Championships, something had to give. David Aulejtner achieved pole position but it was Maksy Solarski, from opposite pole, who took the win, thereby promoting himself from 3rd place into the lead with only one more round to go.
Anthony Cleal and Ben Pearson enjoyed a tremendous tussle throughout the heats, it was, however, Cleal on pole for the Final, courtesy of Pearson oiling-up on the rolling lap of heat 2. From the lights, Cleal took the lead with Pearson never more than a meter away and so to the flag. Behind, Robin Stoddart-Stones and David Watts were battling it out for 3rd place, which eventually was claimed by Watts.
In the master and Veteran sub-groups Cleal and Stoddard-Stones re-inforced their first two placings in the Club Championship, though it is Ron Shone who moves up to 3rd , one point ahead of David Goode.
Stoddart-Stones, with a light to flag win, moves further ahead in the Legend group. It is David Goode who puts a little clear air, albeit 1 point, between him and Ron shone for 2nd overall.
In the Top-Weight subclass, Ben Pearson is now in an unassailable lead ( provided he starts the final round). Second is Ron Shone although he has been closed down by Rob Mortimore. Yet again, there is the tightest of margins ( 1 point) between them going into the last round.
The Championship moves on to the Clay Pigeon Circuit for the Final Round on November 11th, which carries a 100 point non-attendance penalty! In most of the Championship classes, drivers in the top 4 positions are separated by only 1 or 2 points, so racing will be tightly contested. Throw the Matthew Percy for Formula Blue into the mix and it promises to be one ‘ Hell of a finale’.
Drivers are reminded that entries need to be in by 12pm on Sat 3rd November.
